hey kids-
well, after back-to-back losses, our patriots are back on track- and so am i with your tommies. the first loss (WEEK TWELVE @ DENVER BRONCOS L 30-24) was a heartbreaker and I couldn’t stomach looking at game photos, and the second (WEEK THIRTEEN VS. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES L 35-28)  was a comedy of errors – but i was busy moving into my own place (hurray) and writing for people who pay me (hurray hurray). that brings us to this week’s win against the houstons. let’s do it!
i knew things were going to be alright when i saw tommy warming up pregame – with his ferocious face firmly in place. we never lose when he pulls out the ferocious face! our fearless quarterback wound 22 of 30 for 226 yards and two touchdowns – one to his barely gone but sorely missed buddy, rob gronkowski. between the face and the gronk, this one was in the bag.

the hits just keep on coming, with blount and easley both leaving this game with season-ending injuries. thankfully, plenty of guys stepped up to fill in the holes – particularly jabaal sheard and akiem hicks on defense, each with two sacks. gronk racked up 87 yards and little white rushed for another touchdown, but this week’s tommy is going to tommy. it’s been a rough couple of weeks, but our tommy keeps finding ways to keep us afloat – even acting as a running back and receiver for our depleted offense. leadership, competitiveness, and general roguish charm win the day! here he is, explaining to the refs that we’re going to win this one, no matter how many calls they decide to reverse.

we clinched a playoff spot with this win – and with julian edelman running around in practice again (hurray hurray hurray!!!!), our future is looking more promising than our present. we’ve got tennessee on sunday and i’ve got high hopes, so think your happy patriots thoughts! I’ll be back with the holiday edition of the tommy sooner than later – promise!
have a great weekend, and go pats!

love dav
